Questions & Answers

I just bought the new LG LF5800 and there are two broad bands of grey on each side of the screen. I have followed all settings as advised, but can't get rid of them.
What are you watching? If you're watching DVDs or standard definition TV, it's normal to see bars on the size of the screen. If you don't mind cropping the image to get rid of the bars, press the 'Ratio' button on the remote and then choose 'Zoom.'
